Teaching and Learning Method

The variety of teaching and learning methods which is used within a course is an important ingredient in creating a course with interest to students. A course with a large proportion of its teaching taking place in lectures will need to have a high level of intrinsic interest to students to keep them engaged. Over the past few years, a wide range of different teaching and learning methods have been introduced and tested, often with the aim of developing skills which more didactic methods are poorly adapted to do. There is a substantial literature on these methods and on how best to use them.

It is not possible here to provide great detail on every possible teaching and learning method, so instead we have focused on some of the issues which could be considered by course teams when choosing the components of their course. A useful document to refer to is the Guidelines for Promoting Effective Learning, produced by the Centre for Research on Learning and Instruction.
